" Anne Lister (3 April 1791 – 22 September 1840) was an English landowner and diarist from Halifax, West Yorkshire. Throughout her life, she kept diaries that chronicled the details of her daily life, including her lesbian relationships, her financial concerns, her industrial activities, and her work improving Shibden Hall. Her diaries contain 7,720 pages and more than 5 million words and about a sixth of them – those concerning the intimate details of her romantic and sexual relationships – were written in code. The code, derived from a combination of algebra and Ancient Greek, was deciphered in the 1930s. Lister is often called "the first modern lesbian" for her clear self-knowledge and openly lesbian lifestyle. Called "Fred" by her lover and "Gentleman Jack" by Halifax residents, she suffered harassment for her sexuality, but recognized her similarity to the Ladies of Llangollen, whom she visited. "

I don't care for or against LGBTQI+ agendas, 2nd 3rd or 4th Wave Feminism, nor identity politics, etc. and I find they will often ruin entertainment. However, I'm perfectly fine with it in entertainment when well written, properly produced, nicely handled, intelligently, interestingly, and with purpose, such as in this show - seemingly as I have yet to see it, but I will shortly, on the recommendation of Bernadette Banner who loved the period clothing: /s/VintageFashions/comments/6icq/5_historical_films_that_got_the_costumes_right/

I'm almost tempted to re-read the first 4 books I read 35 years ago and finish the series.

Would be close to A+++ but it's only A++ because it's too generalized and vague without substantial examples on occasion, not to mention it's just 2 talking heads without compelling glossy imagery.
